Download Festival: East Midlands Airport passengers urged to allow extra time

East Midlands Airport (EMA) is encouraging passengers to allow plenty of time for their journeys to and from the airport during the Download Festival which runs from Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 June.

While access to the airport from the M1 is largely unaffected, other local routes, particularly if approaching from east of the airport, will be busy.

Airport users can check the latest traffic updates before they set off on East Midlands Airport’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

Donington Park, which is the Festival site, is located next to East Midlands Airport, four miles west of junction 23a of the M1 and five miles from junction 24.
